You're already doing one of the best things for your child and your family by getting Early Intervention services!
The goal of Early Intervention is to help kids with developmental delays catch up. Many of the program's services will also address the special needs of kids with ASD and their families.
If you don't already, you will soon have the following things in place:
A contact person, or Family Service Coordinator (FSC) to help you manage the services
An Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) that describes the therapies and other services your child and family will get
Your Family Service Coordinator should be checking in with you every 3 months to make sure everything is going well. If this isn't happening, call them!
